onetime tax of 3% on all bank deposits under $130,000. >> going deep here. >> the tax could be closer to 10% on people who have over $640,000 in the bank. that's according to the "the wall street journal" this morning. people stood in long lines over the weekend to withdraw money before the policy went into effect and now russian president vladimir putin is calling the move, quote, unfair, unprofessional and dangerous. russian citizens make up the majority of billions of euros held in cypress bank. this is important. >> cypress. >> who cares about cyprus? >> come on, cyprus. are you telling me if somebody sneezes in cyprus we get a cold than on the nasdaq? >> tell us why. >> we have a cold on the nasdaq. the nasdaq is going down today. not too many people care about cyprus but a way the europeans have screwed up the bailout by getting the people to pay a part of the cost. you could have a run on the bank and europeans say why do i have my money in this bank? might be a tax on me next. it shows that europe is still a mess, that they have a whole bunch of problems and cyprus may be tiny bu

. they are going to be paying higher tax rates because washington is not taking care of long-term debt. >> they also suffered through the housing crisis and they have got mountains of student loan debt that they are really forced to recover from for many, many years. and it delays their transition into real adulthood. >> we don't talk about that enough. >> student debt is the only kind of debt that grew during the recession. student debt is monstrous. it's a threat to our entire economy. >> you talk about the next big bubble bursting? >> it's huge. huge. >> student debt will be a crisis. >> i have another question and maybe for my own kind of personal experience. when i turned 21 and got my first job my mother drilled in to me pay yourself first. she made me ready "the wealthy barber." >> great book. >> i wonder. this generation came of age when the era when credit was everywhere and flowing. people, i guess in this under 40 generation might look at credit card different from their parents. what does that psyche play a role here? we think of nothing of charging. i moved to new york in

departs of the they said we think you should tax departs. imposing austerity is not going to work here, there's only a million people. this country sdwaedoesn't want this because they're a business model. their business model is to attract deposits here. they pay 4% and 5%. so that's the big fight, how do they come up with that 5.8 billion. they may have to shut down banks. that's why you're seeing lines at the atm. >> so how does this resolve itself over the next week? >> reporter: so the banks are going to be closed at least until tuesday. that's the deadline that the european central bank has said to cyprus you better come up with the deal or else we're going to cut off your banks. that means they're not going to fly in cash like they have been doing, they're not going to provide liquidity. if you don't know what that means, it's very simple. the weak banks will fail, they'll get shut down and people will lose a lot of money. that's probably how it's going to end up happening in some form or fashion. the weirdest possible outlier is that cyprus says, you know what, we don't want to

acknowledged the need for undocumented workers to pay penalties and taxes also used the moment to make the case for a culture that embraces immigrants saying the country's economic future is at stake. >> immigration makes us stronger. keeps us vibrant, keeps us hungry, prosperous. it is part of what makes this such a dynamic country. we've known for years our immigration system is broken. and we're not doing enough to harness the talent and individuality of those who want to find a place here in america. and the time has come to fix it once and for all. >> a bipartisan group of eight senators hopes to have a plan drawn up by shortly after easter. ted cruise cast doubt on the negotiations. in an interview with the dallas morning news, cruz said he believes the president wants the immigration reform effort to quote crater so that democrats can hammer republicans on the immigration issue in the 2014 midterm elections. cruz pointed to the controversial pathway to citizenship which he said will ultimately kill the bill. the white house responded saying flatly there's no evidence to support

. >> douglas, why can't we have simultaneously a robust debate on tax reform? that is sitting out there and no one is moving on it and everyone is very unhappy with the tax code as it currently exists and there are some opportunities there to pick up some additional revenue. but, at the same time, it would send a signal, i think, across the entire spectrum of the country maybe they can get something done. >> i agree with you. you're an experienced observer of these things. why can't we have this? the simpson-bowles system is hire tax reform and we are trapped. >> i don't know why the president just doesn't reach out and say we are having trouble with these other issues. this is one in which we can all gather at the same place and get something done. >> isn't the argument what to do about the -- that's where everyone sort of breaks. the president is saying, it's not -- some of it should be used to -- some of it should go back into the government and some of it could be used to lower tax rates. >> the president is not spending the good tax reform and debate is why. washington loves to talk ab

over ten years without raising taxes. now senator patty murray will work with congressman paul ryan to try and bridge the gap between the two radically different proposals. mark, i think it would have been a public service to the american public to actually point out some of the amendments that they raised in this marathon session they had over in the senate over the weekend. >> from the sublime to the ridiculous. >> oh, my god. >> but they have a senate budget now and a house budget and i think most people think we are going to plod through this year and not have a big deal unless the president somehow comes back and reengages but a pretty big difference starting with the senate bill has lots of new revenue in it. >> give me an idea. give me an idea of the previews of coming traattractions. >> you have patty murray with her budget and paul ryan with his budget on the other side of the table. >> let's say i think they are far apart which i'm dubious as to where these negotiations will go and it comes back to what we were talking about earlier. where is the president going to wind up
